On April 17, 2012 the space shuttle Discovery hitched a ride on the back of a 747 jumbo jet especially designed as a space shuttle transport. It landed at Dulles Airport in Washington, DC, and the process to deliver Discovery to its new home at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center got under way. Through the eyes of a veteran NASA tour guide and aficionado, DJ Emmanuel, we get a behind-the-scenes view of what it was like to be there on such an historic and exciting day!

The National Tour of C.S. Lewis’ THE GREAT DIVORCE comes to Charlotte on February 15 & 16!

January 27th, 2014

The National Tour of C.S. Lewis’ THE GREAT DIVORCE comes to Charlotte on February 15 & 16!
Event on 2014-02-16 15:00:00

New York–Max McLean, Artistic Director of Fellowship for the Performing Arts, announces that C.S. Lewis’THE GREAT DIVORCE will be presented at The Knight Theater, Levine Center for the Arts, 430 South Tryon Street, for three performances only on Saturday, February 15 at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Sunday, February 16 at 3 p.m.  This journey to Heaven and Hell is a provocative exploration of human nature, featuring vivid characters drawn with Lewis’ trademark wit.  THE GREAT DIVORCE National Tour will visit cities including Cleveland, Nashville, Colorado Springs and Columbus in 2014. 

Fellowship for the Performing Arts also produces the nationally acclaimed hit THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS, which will soon enter its fourth year after appearing in over 50 major cities throughout the United States.  Over 350,000 theatergoers have seen THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS on tour and in successful sit-down productions in New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Following the overwhelming success of THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS, McLean conceived the idea to adapt THE GREAT DIVORCE for the stage.

"This is Lewis at his imaginative best," says McLean. In THE GREAT DIVORCE, several of Lewis' most provocative characters take a bus ride from Hell to Paradise. But the bizarre question the play asks is: Will they like it? Will they prefer Hell to Heaven?  Are the doors of Hell really locked from the inside?

Three actors transform into over a dozen different personality types to tell this fantastical morality tale about good and evil. On the bus is a man who is going to demand his ‘rights’, a woman who can't stop grumbling, a gentleman who ‘likes’ Heaven but staying there means giving up his precious pet lizard, and a world traveler who believes Heaven and Hell are just a propaganda stunt run by the same people.  As each ghost is welcomed by a celestial spirit, the choice of staying or going back brings vivid clarity to the “great divorce” between Heaven and Hell. 

"There are only two kinds of people in the end," Lewis writes in THE GREAT DIVORCE, "those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, in the end, 'Thy will be done.'"  THE GREAT DIVORCEremains one of Lewis' most influential pieces and rightly earns its place among classics such as The Lion, The Witch and The WardrobeThe Screwtape Letters and Mere Christianity

THE GREAT DIVORCE stars Tom Beckett (Bobby BolandEpic Proportions and The Father on Broadway and “Elbridge Gerry” in HBO's John Adams), Joel Rainwater (The Lion King, National Tour) and Christa Scott-Reed (The Pitmen Painters on Broadway).

Fellowship for the Performing Arts is based in New York City with Max McLean as Founder and Artistic Director.  Adapted by McLean and Brian Watkins, THE GREAT DIVORCE is directed by Bill Castellino, with the creative team including Executive Producer and General Manager Ken Denison of Aruba Productions, Scenic Designer Kelly James Tighe, Costume Designer Nicole Wee and Lighting Designer Michael Gilliam. Original Music and Sound Design are by John Gromada with Projections by Chris Kateff.

Fellowship for the Performing Arts' production of THE GREAT DIVORCE celebrates the legacy of C.S. Lewis’ profoundly influential life and honors the 50th anniversary of his death on November 22, 1963.  In 2013, on that date, Lewis received one of Britain's highest honors, a memorial in Poets' Corner joining such legends as Chaucer, Shakespeare and Dickens.

THE GREAT DIVORCE will play on Saturday, February 15 at 4 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, February 16 at 3 p.m.  Tickets are to .  Student seats are (student ID required). For groups of 10 or more (including student groups) call 866.476.8707.

To purchase tickets, visit www.greatdivorceonstage.com or call 704.372.1000. The Blumenthal Center Box Office is located at 130 North Tryon Street and open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.   The Knight Theater Box Office at 430 South Tryon Street is open one hour prior to performances.

Why is the federal government so narrow minded when it comes to marijuana. Even medicinal marijuana?

February 6th, 2013

Question by Anthony: Why is the federal government so narrow minded when it comes to marijuana. Even medicinal marijuana?
I read that the federal government is cracking down in medical marijuana dispensaries everywhere. Wtf?
It treats several diseases. Such as glaucoma, nausea, anxiety, even asthma. How is it a “joke” that it is medical? Just curious for your view on it.

Best answer:

Answer by ingsoc1
Medical marijuana is a joke, Just legalize it because its harmless. But saying its medical is like saying crystals are medical.
Only one legit study shows some promise in lung cancer treatment and that’s not close to saying smoking it would have the same effect

Edit because it does not treat those things better then available treatments and there is little to no evidence smoking it helps those things at all. Go ahead look for a legit study not anecdotal evidence .
No doctor is going to say yea get stoned before you drive to work for your glaucoma when he can give you something more effective and safer

How would a laissez-faire government work when it comes to crimes committed against others?

October 15th, 2012

Question by graygoose: How would a laissez-faire government work when it comes to crimes committed against others?
After reading some articles on Libertarians beliefs and a laissez-faire government, which I believe would be an “ideal” form of government, is it realistic? I believe in order for something to truly work, well, it must have order. So with that being said, how would a laissez-faire government work when it comes to consequences or accountability? More specifically, when crimes are committed against others, what would a laissez-faire government do to protect the rights of the victim? Are there consequences for the perpetrator?

Best answer:

Answer by Suzanne
Laissez-faire doesn’t mean no government and disputes would be settled just like they are now, in Court.

“Laissez-faire (English pronunciation: /?l?se??f??r/ ( listen), French: [l?sef??] ( listen)) is an economic environment in which transactions between private parties are free from tariffs, government subsidies, and enforced monopolies, with only enough government regulations sufficient to protect property rights against theft and aggression. ”
